To study the changing nature of work, researchers need measures of work that are valid and comprehensive. One potentially useful measure of work is the Multimethod Job Design Questionnaire (MJDQ; Campion, 1988), which was developed to assess 4 general approaches to work design (i.e., motivational, mechanistic, biological, perceptualmotor). Although the MJDQ holds promise as a general measure of work, little information is available regarding its psychometric properties. This study examines the…

Work Design Questionnaire : Spanish version and validation aime
The purpose of this study is to validate the Spanish version of the Work Design Questionnaire (WDQ; Morgeson & Humphrey, 2006). Employees from three Colombian samples completed the questionnaire (N =
The Work Design Questionnaire (WDQ): developing and validating a comprehensive measure for assessing job design and the nature of work.
TLDR
The results showed that social support incrementally predicted satisfaction beyond motivational work characteristics but was not related to increased training and compensation requirements, which provides new insight into how to avoid the trade-offs commonly observed in work design research.
The nature and outcomes of work: a replication and extension of interdisciplinary work-design research.
TLDR
This study reanalyzes data from M. A. Campion (1988) using structural equation models that incorporate measurement error, specify multiple dimensions for each work-design approach, and examine the work- design approaches and outcomes jointly.

One Hundred Years of Work Design Research: Looking Back and Looking Forward
TLDR
A big picture perspective on work design research is taken and five key work design perspectives that map onto distinct historical developments are identified that build connections across the clusters and it is argued that there is scope for further integration.
Work design characteristics as perceived by nurse managers at Assiut University Hospital *
Identifying the components of a given job is an integral part of job design. Designing or redesigning jobs encompasses many factors, and a number of different techniques are available to the manager.
Assessing reliability and validity of the Work Design Questionnaire as a tool for macro ergonomics surveys: A case study in an Iranian worker population in 2016
TLDR
The PWDQ would be applicable as a valid and reliable tool for evaluating the work characteristics of Persian-language organizations and industries and it was found that this tool based on the macro ergonomics principles is suitable for accidents control, safety promotion, cost management, and improvement of organizational efficiency/productivity.
